Core Values

Respect

For ourselves and others

For the organization and its resources,

For the planet

For the connections between it all

Humility

We are engaged in a process of discovery and have as much to learn as to share

Education

As a lifelong process for ourselves and everyone

Rigor

Giving our sustained and best effort in everything we do and if this is a challenge we welcome it

Intentionality

Create the world we want in our thoughts, our words and our actions

Emergence

We plan but are responsive and value and nourish that which is organic; we start where the needs and the passion take us, and follow this everywhere

Fun and Laughter

Whatever we are doing there is time to smile, laugh and have fun together

Faith

As the substance of things we are working for and the evidence of things not necessarily seen; we have faith that ordinary people can and will define and solve the critical issues we face.
